Pictured is a Shelton dining table made recently for a private client. Completed last week in the workshop, the table has undergone layer upon layer of polish to achieve the perfect finish under furniture maker Gordon’s critical eye.

Made from American black walnut veneer in a sunburst pattern, the table blends tradition with a contemporary shape and an innovative, flexible seating arrangement. Designed to seat eight, it can be extended to seat ten people with the use of additional leaves that lock onto the outside edge of the table. As Guild Anderson make each piece of furniture to order, the scale of the Shelton table can be altered to fit a particular room.


Our clients tell us it is incredibly satisfying owning furniture designed specifically for their home; as a maker, it is a wonderful thing to have the opportunity to create pieces that have real longevity and that will be passed down from generation to generation.
